Summer Kale Salad

summer kale salad

I love a good summer salad, and this recipe has been my go-to lately because it’s packed with nutrients and incredibly quick to make! The recipe itself is very simple, but it’s got amazing flavor combinations — The strawberries and coconut offset the naturally bitter taste of the kale, and the almonds add a great crunch. If you don’t dress the salad right away, it stores really well in a container in the fridge, so you can easily prepare it ahead of time and then add the dressing once you’re ready to eat. I also like to serve this with a grilled chicken breast and some sliced avocado on top, to make it a complete meal! Hope you guys enjoy!
